Pros & Cons

Pros

Better than my old LG C1. So about a year ago I got myself an OLED. Boy was that a BIG MISTAKE. within 9 months I got burn-in on my screen it had a greenish tent to it RIGHT in the middle. You couldn't leave the screen on something like an image longer then an hour without it buring in which I guess is true of any OLED, I overrated how it might get burn eventually and well it did Plus the C1 would dim on it's own without me being about to stop it. I felt like I had to baby the T.V. just because it was an OLED. But like I said it eventually got BAD BAD burn in. I was about to re a refund because I had a warranty and I decided to get a T.V. that wasn't an OLED with my refunded money and this Samsung Mini LED is what I got so far it's met my expectations and I'm happy to say it's a great buy it's better then the CI and I don't feel like I have to baby it for fear of bad burn in.

The picture is absolutely nuts. This tv is impressive to look at. I'm super picky about TVs and during actual content, it's wonderful to look at. only complaint is about the speakers. q symphony isn't great and I 100% recommend a soundbar.

Happy with my purchase. Fantastic picture quality. One of the best I've ever seen, if not the best.

Amazing tv. Awesome tv, great picture. Bright. Also love the new xbox app where can use my game pass without console & play my games.

Fantastic picture, intuitive interface, eco friendly remote. This is not the largest TV in the house, but it's certainly the best. We set this up, and I'm floored with the features, the smart interface, the picture quality and even the remote. We've generally stuck with LG televisions, but I think that trend ends here. The Samsung NEO QLED TV has an easy setup process. Immediately on powering it on, it gave the option to complete the setup using my phone. I scanned the QR code on the screen and actually thought that it was broken - setup did nothing. After a few minutes, I backed out, connected the TV to wifi and then it connected via SmartThings. I have a Galaxy phone, so it automatically registered the TV to my Samsung account and completed the product registration for me. There was an immediate software update needed, but it took less than five minutes. Overall, the entire process of turning the TV on and then being able to watch took less than ten minutes and was mostly painless. Once the setup was complete, the TV automatically turned to the Samsung TV plus channels. The picture quality is stunning, but I didn't even try taking a picture of it - a photo won't get it across. We have 4k TVs, but the picture quality of this TV is far superior to our other two. Nature documentaries on this screen are incredible. The screen is also so thin, and the bezel is nearly non-existent. The TV has a cool feature where when you plug in something - a soundbar, a game console, or even a DVD player - it automatically recognizes the device and also automatically sets up the remote to work with it. And the remote! It's thin and a little difficult to hold, but the features are fantastic. It's a universal smart remote that can automatically pair itself with new devices. It has a rechargeable battery and a solar panel on the back that can charge the remote with standard indoor lighting. The battery will never die. And if it ever gets low, it can be recharged quickly via USB C. The controls on the remote are less intuitive than on other remotes. The volume and channel buttons took me a few seconds to figure out. You don't press the button, you rock the button up or down. Now, to the interface - we often know exactly what we want to watch, but will spend 20 minutes just trying to find it. We have multiple streaming services, and it's tedious to try to find the one that has your movie for free. Samsung's interface allows you to search for a title, and it tells you which streaming service has it, if it's free or a rental, and the cost. That feature alone makes me want to slowly phase out all of our older TVs for Samsung models. The smart interface is much more intuitive than LG or Roku. We haven't tried out the assistant features yet (re: Google Home or Alexa) and probably won't. Ambient mode is also a really nice feature. Samsung has a stock of images and videos that you can have displayed on the TV when not actively viewing. It's not as nice as Art Mode on The Frame, but it's still a nice and relaxing feature. The only drawbacks I have for the TV: 1) The remote is too narrow. If you have big hands, it might make you mad. And the buttons on the remote aren't immediately intuitive. 2) There is no art mode! I know it isn't The Frame, but it would be wonderful if Samsung put Art Mode on all of their high end TV models. There is an ambient mode, but it's not quite the same. Those two drawbacks don't even take away half a star. It's a wonderful TV. I'll update this as we continue to use additional features.

Big upgrade from my last Samsung TV, perfect for cord cutters! I have been using a previous generation 1080p LED Samsung TV mounted to my wall with a Firestick for entertainment, as well as some older game systems. I knew that the newer display panel would have some advantages other than more resolution, and that the smart-TV functions would be an upgrade, but I had no idea how much of an upgrade it would be! First of all, I obviously no longer need a Firestick. This TV has everything built in, and even has stick-style remote included so if you're used to that, this will be very familiar. All the streaming services I wanted are there, however I was nervous about some apps like Plex not being available since I have a Plex server of my own library and I didn't think it was such a popular mainstream thing to do. Sure enough, Plex IS an option and it performs flawlessly! The TV even has a browser built in, really making it feel like there's no reason to keep the Firestick around. Not only that but it actually has a lot of built in live content straight from Samsung. Personally, I'm a cord-cutter and no longer subscribe to cable TV or even bother with local broadcast. I've been streaming only for years now, so I was surprised to find that Samsung offers me what appear to be live channels I can tune in complete with a guide like a cablebox. Some of the channels even have things I might be interested in, however I might look into disabling this feature since the idea of cutting the cord was partly to prevent my kids from mindlessly watching things "because it is on". Since the menus are run on the TV itself, everything displays and moves at glorious high frame rate 4k resolution, which is awesome. Part of the problem with a high hz and resolution TV is that there usually is not a lot of content that takes advantage of all of that. Most of the time you're watching content only available in 1080/30p at best, unless you are lucky enough to find something available in full 4k and high frame rate. The menus and UI clearly do and you can see and feel the difference- navigating on this is a pleasure. It syncs up with Alexa (you can also use Bixby and Google Home), and allows me to make announcements that will be heard on the TV, such as "turn it off and come upstairs". As a parent, I like that- but then again, the Firestick could do that too. What supposedly makes this even better is that it implied I have the ability to also turn on or off the TV using Alexa (so I can ask her to, for example, shut it down at bedtime). I could not get that feature to work but I might not have set it up correctly yet. One thing I DON'T like, which comes with every new TV, is their motion-smoothing picture thing that causes the dreaded "soap opera effect" on narratives films and shows. This can be turned off, but it took me a while to figure out where it was. It has moved since my last Samsung TV, and it was counterintuitive since I turned it off in the settings, but then found it set to auto within the program I was watching. I'm not sure if its a per-profile setting or something, but after turning it off there as well it finally is actually STAYING off. Motion looks like a movie theater again instead of like a video game cut scene. I really like the way the remote has a solar panel on the back- I don't know yet if this is just a gimmick but it's a very cool idea. The fact that it is rechargeable and doesn't need batteries is huge as well. All in all, this is a great upgrade to my old TV. The price is a little steep, but you get a lot for your money. The picture quality is astounding, especially on content that can take advantage of all it has to offer. I recommend it!

Cons

Buyer beware! I blame myself for foolishly buying another Samsung TV after my previous $1800 65" set abruptly failed after just 18 months, 6 months out of warranty. After a $100 service call and much time on the phone with Samsung support, it was decided the +$1,000 repair estimate was too much and a new set was needed. Samsung offered an "I'm sorry" but no other consideration. Figured I would hedge my bet on the new set with a 4 year extended warranty but didn't expect the Playskool designed remote control and worthless screws too short to attach the TV stand. Had to use longer screws from the old tv. The solar powered remote is junk, plain and simple, hence the one star on Smart features. Amazingly touchy, it was nearly impossible to control the cursor and set up streaming services. Luckily I was able to pair the Comcast remote to the TV and hope to never use the ridiculous Samsung device. The picture looks good but haven't really watched it yet as it took over 2 1/2 hours just to attach the stand and set the system up. The last set had factory settings that magnified the "soap opera" effect and hoping that is not the case on the new set. Again, my stupid error buying Samsung a second time. Never again. Gave 3 stars due to a good picture and an awful everything else.

Large Green Line after 2 weeks. Loved the TV initally and was so disappointed when a large green line appeared on the left side of the screen after only two weeks of use. I was shocked because I have 5 other Samsungs and all have performed well over many years. Returned.

Beautiful Screen, Annoying Interface. This is an amazingly beautiful screen for a really great price of only $1400. It is incredibly bright, the bezel is incredibly small, the sound is really nice and the remote is really cool. Unfortunately, the user interface is incredibly complicated and annoying. If you just want to watch TV and use a few apps like NetFlix, Apple TV+, Hulu, etc. it is fine. Trying to use any of the more sophisticated features makes it really frustrating. When I ordered the TV my wife agreed to replace a large piece of artwork with the idea that the "Ambient Mode" would allow it to subtly sit in the background when it wasn't being watched like a piece of artwork. Unfortunately, everything related to setting a screen saver and using ambient mode is really frustrating to try to set up. Even something simple like turning on a Screen Saver in in the settings gives you a simple On/Off switch but there is no obvious way to adjust the settings. And then, even when it is turned on, it only activates occasionally. Many times we will finish watching a show and come back the next day with the screen sitting on the screen to select the next episode and now showing the screen saver. Likewise, the main interface for choosing a show seems to aggressively start playing things on the screen when you are just looking around. It is really annoying when you are just trying to see what is available and random things start playing. I won't list all my complaints but my plan is to get an Apple TV so I can just avoid it completely. Other than the annoyances with the interface. The TV is really fantastic. The sound is really great. We had planned on moving a soundbar into the room but the built-in sound is great enough we are rethinking the plan. The remote is really cool. I like the fact that it charges via solar (although funny you have to place it face down to charge.) The remote is sleek in the hand and it works really well. The screen is really beautiful. When it is in the (somewhat funky) Ambient Mode is almost looks like art on the wall with a dull matt look. When it is on and in full brightness modes like Cinema for movies it is incredibly vibrant and clear. Overall happy with the "SAMSUNG 55-Inch Class Neo QLED 4K QN85B Series Mini LED Quantum HDR 24x Smart TV with Alexa Built-in (QN55QN85BAFXZA, 2022 Model)" screen but unhappy with the user interface.

Why are all the reviews for smaller sizes and not 85"? None of these reviews are for 85" TV. They are all for smaller sizes.
